KOTA BAHARU, 17 Nov (Bernama) -- Saranan perwakilan PAS supaya Presidennya Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang memegang jawatan perdana menteri sekiranya pembangkang memenangi Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) Ke-13, menggamatkan hari kedua muktamar tahunan PAS ke-58 di sini, hari ini.

Perwakilan Dewan Ulama PAS, Hairun Nizam ketika membahaskan ucapan dasar presiden menggamatkan lebih 1,000 perwakilan yang bertakbir sebanyak tiga kali sebagai tanda sokongan dengan kenyataan bahawa Abdul Hadi merupakan calon terbaik menjadi perdana menteri.

Hairun turut menyatakan bahawa anggota PAS tidak perlu berkempen untuk pemimpin lain selain Abdul Hadi bagi jawatan nombor satu negara itu.

Abdul Hadi dalam satu sidang media kemudiannya menenangkan keadaan dengan menyatakan siapa pemimpin yang layak untuk menjadi Perdana Menteri akan ditentukan apabila tiba masanya selepas PRU Ke-13 dan isu itu tidak perlu diperdebat pada masa sekarang.

Bagaimanapun pendirian perwakilan PAS itu jelas bercanggah dengan pendirian pemimpin DAP Lim Kit Siang dalam Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat di sini malam tadi yang menyatakan sokongannya kepada Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menjadi perdana menteri.

Sementara itu, isu hudud terus mendapat perhatian hari ini apabila Perwakilan PAS Wilayah Persekutuan Zahari Arip membidas sikap pemimpin parti dalam pakatan pembangkang yang masih berdolak-dalik mengenai isu hukum hudud.

Beliau berkata pakatan pembangkang sepatutnya sepakat melaksanakan hukum itu sekiranya berjaya mengambil-alih kerajaan persekutuan pada PRU Ke-13 kerana Abdul Hadi memberi ''lampu hijau'' melaksanakannya mengikut lunas demokrasi.

DAP melalui Pengerusi Kebangsaanya Karpal Singh dan Timbalan Pengerusi Kebangsaannya, Dr Tan Seng Giaw semalam tetap menegaskan hukum hudud itu tiada dalam persepakatan parti pembangkang.

Selain itu, isu kepimpinan ulama PAS turut mendapat perhatian perwakilan hari ini apabila beberapa perwakilan seperti dari Pahang, Mokhtar Senik meminta kepimpinan ulama dalam PAS dipertahan dan anasir mengancam kepimpinan itu dihapuskan.

Naib Presiden PAS Datuk Mahfuz Omar ketika menggulung ucapan dasar Presiden PAS ternyata tidak senang dengan dakwaan kepimpinan ulama semakin terhakis dalam parti itu.

Sambil menegaskan intipati kepimpinan ulama terkandung dalam perlembagaan PAS, beliau berkata perlembagaan itu perlu dipinda terlebih dahulu sebelum kepimpinan ulama dapat dihapuskan daripada parti itu.

Mahfuz juga berkata para perwakilan sepatutnya menumpukan perbahasan kepada iltizam memerintah negara bersama pakatan pembangkang.

Muktamar bersambung esok dengan tumpuan kepada ucapan penggulungan oleh Abdul Hadi.
